    Not interested in Bantam size birds.

    Looking for eggs, Araucana eggs. Tailless or not.
    Tuffted or now.

    Not Americana's, I have them.

    Not EE er's.

    If you are selling eggs, please let me know. If you want to get rid of a bird or so, let me know,

    I have never shipped or received a chicken larger than a day old chick.

    Thanks

    I can ship a dozen eggs either tomorrow or Tuesday. Price is $35.00 which includes shipping . If you would like birds that will be laying in two or three months I will ship a trio for $100.00 plus $80.00 Shipping and a new shipping box. You should know that Araucanas are probably one of the most difficult breeds to hatch from eggs. Fertility is always iffy in Rumpless birds and can vary from week to week, plus you will be dealing with a lethal gene with the tufted chicks. I am hatching a few chicks on a weekly basis mostly to check fertility of the eggs. A week ago I got only two Rumpless Tufted chicks out of 15 hatched. Yesterday(September 20) I had 8 Tufted Rumpless chicks out of 13. The eggs I ship are from the same beeeders, but the point I am trying to make is, from eggs, the type of chick you will get is a gamble.
